View Full Version : Help moving CSS formatted object & keep formatting

06-18-2012, 10:25 PM

I am both new to Dreamweaver and CSS so please bear with me as I will probably fumble greatly trying to explain what I need to do

I downloaded a very clean looking web page that uses a CSS for its formatting and the web site I'm building is going very well. In the bottom left corner of my html page I have a box which says “Topics” and then below that will have 4-8 menu items. The box border color, shading color, font size, alignment, color, and positioning, as well as the bullet color all come from the CSS sheet.

I have a need to move that box to a different part of the page but when I copy it and then select from the many paste options, I get the box and the text but all the formatting is lost. I’m not sure what I need to do or post here in order to get help.

Thanks so much

It's probably down to some compound CSS that takes styles from a particular div id and cascades from that. Can't say much more without an example or link.
